BREAKTHROUGH IS COMING – So… Stay Away from What’s Temporary…
The Spirit is about to bring breakthrough to many who have been wandering in a wilderness and are learning to resist temptation, not lose heart, and keep their focus on Him. I believe God wants you right now to recognize that there are all sorts of things trying to take away your attention. Your birthright is under attack. But as you fix your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith, the one who is your hope and who has extraordinary plans for you, you will endure. You’ll even thrive. Breakthrough will come.
It’s very easy when you have experienced disappointment—when the things you’ve been hoping for don’t come to pass—to give in to the temptation to be depressed or bitter, or to go comfort yourself with pleasures that will not satisfy you in the long run. But the reality is that those pleasures cannot fill your deep longings. They cannot take away any disappointments you have felt or distract you from your true calling in any satisfying way. . .
They are temporary—just as your wilderness is temporary. And you never really want to make lifelong mistakes to address a temporary need or desire.
